Invest in the right lunch box. One big issue with preparing lunch for your kids is that many lunch boxes out here just don’t give you a lot of options.
Since food safety is important, you want to make sure the lunch you prepare is staying safe. With the right lunch box design, this isn’t an issue.
Old school square lunch boxes are actually some of my favorite since you can easily add ice packs around the edges to keep things cool.
Bento style boxes are very popular, but can often be difficult to keep properly cold unless stored inside a separate cooler style lunch box.
There are many soft lunch boxes that are designed to stay cold, so they are ideal for functionality and food safety.
Get creative with foods. Kids get tired of the same old peanut butter and jelly sandwich each day. Creative lunch recipes don’t have to be anything fancy.
Simply use your imagination to make the normal choices a bit unique.
Fun cookie cutters turn basics like sandwiches, cheeses, and even fruit or vegetables into fun shapes kids love eating.
Lunch meat and cheese is more fun inside a tortilla as a wrap or quesadilla.
Crackers or pretzel thins replace bread for cracker sandwiches.
There are tons of fun ideas like these that turn basic lunch items into a fun new meal that kids enjoy eating.
Here are a few creative lunch box meals:
Don’t skip the treats. Just because you add a treat to your kids lunch box doesn’t mean it has to be something full of sugar or bad calories.
A treat can be fruit sweetened yogurt, homemade fruit leather, a few dark chocolate morsels, or even surprising them with a thermos of their favorite pasta or soup instead of the basic sandwich.
Other great treats include things like stickers, a new pencil or pen, and of course, our printable lunch box notes with special messages to remind your children how proud you are of them and how much you love them.
Adding in a treat is a great way to remind your children that you are thinking about the throughout the day while they are away.
These tips for making back to school lunches unique and easy to manage are just what you need to gear up for back to school and get excited about the fun times your kids will have this school year.
